My 97 sc4 is the Platinum Metallic. Not the rarest but one you don't see too often. There's a Bordeaux Pearl near me for sale that I really liked in the same Year as mine. Think that's the rarest I've seen.

I own one very rare 97-only Classic Green Pearl factory manual SC300, and one semi-rare Platinum Metallic 96 SC400

They both look sick, what makes the 96 rare?

Possibly/most likely black interior.

Oh man - the green is beautiful. I had a dark green '92 SC300 (my first), and I prefer that color to my current black '97 SC300 5-speed. Aren't the 5-speeds fun?

Any SC with the Cinnabar Pearl color out there ? I don't remember seeing one posted anywhere on this forum. Looks like this is the rarest color.

There are only 3 SC colors that where used for a year .

* Teal Mist Metallic 6N1 was used in 1995 . But there were a lot of SC produced for that year , 15782 . How many were Teal Mist Mettalic ?

* Classic Green Pearl 6P2 was used in 1997 . There were around 4890 produced for that year so how many were Classic Green Pearl ?

* Cinnabar Pearl 3N1 was used in 2000 . There were only around 905 SCs produced for that year so I believe this should be the rarest color ?


Royal Sapphire Pearl 8L5 was used in 1997 and 1998 with a total of 7661 SCs produced for those years
Shaddow Rose Quartz 3K7 was used in 1997 and 1998 with a total of 7661 SCs produced for those years

In all the years I've been a member on here I don't recall seeing a Cinnabar Pear SC. If I did it was way back when I first joined and I couldn't tell you what it looks like.

I love the Teal Mist and Shadow Rose Quartz colors. I've never seen either color for sale locally. I didn't know there were 1998 Royal Sapphire Pearl SC's. I had seen a few pop up but assumed they were repainted or the seller had the wrong information and it was actually a 97. Everyone always said it was a 97 only color but I have seen quite a few 98's pop and it confused me.

This is the only one I could think of, but it's been repainted a different color.

Not mentioned in the above is the small number of 1995 'Special Edition' SCs that came in Baltic Blue Metallic (code 752) as was used on the Supra:

I forgot about the Baltic Blue SC's. I've seen a few of those. I think I may have seen more Supras with that color though.
